The violence experienced by Aboriginal women and girls in Canada is both disproportionate and tragic. To date, more than 80 vigils have been held from Athabasca to Yellowknife. This annual event is a power platform to call attention to the crimes taking place against our Aboriginal girls and women. 'Families of Sisters in Spirit' are now continuing this tradition.
